Well. First question to ask is, what board are you using?

But after looking at the CL and Timing. I'd go with the 3000

Either RAM would work as it's running the proper clock rate for both RAM modules. But as said, looking at the CL (latency), and timing of the RAM. Go with the RAM clocked at 3000 instead of the 3200.

Video editing and production can easily suck up 64GB. Plus 64GB means you can make a 48GB RAM Drive and still have enough RAM for gaming.

I got by before doing video editing and production with just 16GB. I am not sure how 64GB or 32GB could be easily needed when doing video editing and production. I was just rendering and editing videos in 1080P primarily (and even on 12GB on X58 prior to that). Is that for 4K video editing and rendering where 64GB or 32GB would be needed?

Try editing 4K video mate.... or a lot of 1080P at the same time. I can bring a 5930 overclocked to its knees even with 32GB. 64GB is almost a bare min for my needs (and cant wait for 128GB to be 'easy')

IMHO, being able to have it all pushed from storage (eve a fast NVMe SSD) vs RAM.... the ram option does make things easier and editing goes a lot more smoothly. Same with effects and the like being added.
